Android GCM, gradle can't sync properly

I'm new to GCM and trying it for the first time. I followed the documentation as google guide us to. I tried to build and run the project with gradle files set up as followed:

dependencies {  
    classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:1.3.0'
    classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:2.0.0-beta2'

dependencies {
    compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
    compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.0.0'
    compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services:8.4.0'

But I'm getting the next Error:

Error:Execution failed for task ':app:processDebugGoogleServices'. Please fix the version conflict either by updating the version of the google-services plugin (information about the latest version is available at https://bintray.com/android/android-tools/com.google.gms.google-services/) or updating the version of com.google.android.gms to 8.3.0."

When I tried to change it to 8.3.0 or 8.3+ I get this error:

Error:Execution failed for task ':app:processDebugResources'. com.android.ide.common.process.ProcessException: org.gradle.process.internal.ExecException: Process 'command '/Users/sarigbrand/Library/Android/sdk/build-tools/23.0.0/aapt'' finished with non-zero exit value 1
Error:(18) Tag attribute name has invalid character '>'.
Error:(14) Tag attribute name has invalid character '>'."

This issue make my debug.manifest all red and full of errors and my project won't sync at all

Other things I tried:

  1. google-services versions - 2.0.0-alpha9, 1.5.0-beta2, 1.5.0, 1.3.0.
  2. I tried to delete android studio and reinstall (old version - 1.3, new version 1.5)
  3. I tried to download gradle 2.10 or r

Remove this from project-level build.gradle:

classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:2.0.0-beta2'

Use this to reference GCM service in your app build.gradle:

compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-gcm:8.4.0'

This is working for me
